Drazen Petrovic
Birth: Oct. 22, 1964
Splitsko-Dalmatinska, Croatia
Death: Jun. 7, 1993
Eichstätter Landkreis
Bavaria (Bayern), Germany

Professional Basketball Player. As a young man during the 1984-85 season, he once scored 112 points in a Croatian League game, hitting 40 of 60 from the field. He was a member of the silver medal-winning Yugoslavian (1988) and Croatian (1992) Olympic teams. He also led his Real Madrid Spanish league team to the European Cup Championship in February 1989, and led the Yugoslavian National Team to victory at the European Championships in June of that year. His skills propelled him into a brief career in the NBA, cut short by his tragic death at the age of 28 in a car accident in Germany. He began his career with the Portland Trail Blazers in 1989 before he was traded to the New Jersey Nets in 1991, where he played until his tragic death. (bio by: Jelena)
